    Mslucy, 11 Apr 2021Never tried a LG and didn't regret. R.I.P No need to comment if you haven't tried it. I've had my V30 for 3.5 years and still LOVE it. Wishing it would falter to justify getting a new phone/digital assistant.

      I use LGV30+ one of the best mobiles I ever own with hifi dac gr8 sound b&O head phones
      camera is still gr8 too its a shame they left the market
      dont get me wrong there's many gr8 mobiles out

        Had been a dedicated Lg mobile phone for cotinously last ten years.strating with 8 mp black lg than to fabulous G2 ...followed by the modular G5 (still working great)than to the amazing g7 thinq...using for last two years .....great phones cheap pricing super technology, excellent features allways ahead of samsung sony motorola etc in all fields .its a sad decision not by the company but by the consumers by not accepting less advertised smart phones from lg.the best part was that all are made in south korea ....nothing from china like samsung iphone and all others .....
        Lg must try again

              Smartphones are now boring with no new innovation. Nokia, Out...Motorola, Out...Sony, almost out...LG, Out...
              Only hope are Apple and Samsung. Rest all are twin brothers and sisters.

                      LG Nexus 5 was amazing and I also had an LG G4 that didn't bootloop in 2 years (don't know how it ended after me)
                      Really great phones, and the V series always seemed like a cool premium phone
                      Sad to see LG go, they didn't deserve to be so unpopular, but them being plagued by the bootloop issues was on them and I imagine that it killed the brand for the masses when it mattered

                          I remember having the G3, great phone but a littlebit ahead of it's time resolution wise.

                          Nexus 4 was actually my favorite LG phone, terrible battery life and even worse when using 3G, but damn the rest of that phone was excellent, especially for the price.

                          Currently using the LG G8S which will be my last LG phone, aside from "the worst Android update support ever, where not having any updates is the only worst thing", it is aside from that fact a good phone.

                          Good audio, battery life is good (for the capacity), screen is fine, it has a main, telephoto and ultrawide camera (exactly the ones I want) and HEADPHONE JACK.

                          I could go on for a while, it's a fine phone even while not being the best, it does update support aside exactly what I like about LG, not the best, not the worst but it is a neutral jack of all trades.

                          Sad to see them go, but it's for the best considering the sales.

                            LG G2 was one of those phones that really shone when you rooted and modded it. Out of the box it had clunky software and terrible camera app. All of this was fixable with a little customization work. I'm not surprised it sold poorly the way it came out of stores. But I maintain it was one of the best phones ever (as in farthest ahead of its time) in terms of basic hardware.

They had to get another phone because it died after few months and they got LG phones which they had no problems with it. Also, their bomb you to death phone. No wonder they advertised it in HK as "making your life more exciting!"

                                        Too many copied phones out there that drove all the good OEM out of business. I am sure the copycat will bump up their price after all these good OEM went out. They have done it across the business and not just cellphone
